Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok of League of Legends added another record to his already legendary collection in T1’s triumph over KT Rolster
On Jan. 21, Faker set a new career high by recording his 4,137th assist in T1’s win over KT Rolster. With this, the renowned mid laner moved into top place in LCK all-time assists. By the end of the match, Faker’s assist total had risen to 4,143, breaking the previous record of 4,137 established by retiring player Kang ‘GorillA’ Beom-hyeon.
GorillA is presently a Dplus KIA coach. He formerly worked as a support player for over eight years, including teams like as ROX Tigers, Longzhu Gaming, Misfits Gaming, and SANDBOX Gaming.
With 3,459 assists, Go ‘Score’ Dong-bin completes the LCK’s assists trio. He has also retired as a professional player and will be surpassed shortly by 2022 Worlds champion Kim ‘Deft’ Hyuk-kyu, who is presently with Dplus KIA.
Nonetheless, they haven’t been a pro for as long as Faker, who will be celebrating his tenth year as a professional League player in 2023.
More significantly, he has spent all of these years under the SKT T1/T1 banner, which is unlikely to change very soon, since he inked a new deal with the company last November.
According to LoLEsports, he is also at the top in games played (782), victories (524), kills (2,692), and even deaths (1,580).
T1 maintained its flawless start to the LCK Spring split with the victory against KT Rolster, having previously defeated Gen.G 2-0. The Korean squad made no roster changes over the offseason, with Faker committing to the company until the end of 2025.
